Fits pretty small
I haven't had this jacket long but seeing as there aren't many reviews on it, summer is quickly turning to fall, and there's no video on it as of yet; I figured I'd put one out there to help anyone out currently looking at this jacket. So first things first, it fits small. I'm 6' 200lbs 44in chest wear a 54 in Dainese jackets and I am wearing an XL without much room to spare. I originally ordered a L and exchanged it for an XL (easy peasy with Revzilla). The main fit area issue is that it has pretty narrow shoulders. Anyway the jacket itself is great, really good airflow for hot days and it comes with some high quality pads. The fact that a back and chest protector were included with this jacket was a major selling point for me, most other Dainese jackets don't seem to come with these. I intend to use these pads in another Dainese jacket when it's not 80F+ outside. Long story short the jacket is, comfortable, flows TONS of air, and has lots of high quality armor built in. I think it's a good buy for a very hot weather mesh, especially if you have other Dainese jackets that you can use the back and chest protectors in.

Learned to love it
It's basically a mesh jersey filled with lots of CE rated armor.
I ordered this jacket as an alternative to the Air 3 or the Air Frazier. When I got it, I thought that it was way too small (I got a large and wear a size 54 jacket)- when I'm standing up normally the shoulder pads and chest pads look slightly ridiculous. However, on the bike they sort of fall into place and the jacket is comfortable.
I've learned to love it since I took it out for the first ride. The air flow is absurd- it feels like you're not wearing a shirt. For me in 90+ degree/75%+ humidity Minnesota summers, this is a beautiful thing.
The name says it all though- it would be excellent for impact protection: the amount of armor in this jacket is great. Just the kind of protection you'd need while commuting around in the city with lots of traffic at lower speeds. It is not, however, confidence inspiring in the abrasion resistance category. Since I don't usually ride on freeways, this isn't really a concern for me.
This jacket looks like football pads, so don't expect to fly under the radar when you're not on your bike.

M O: I've been looking for the right balance of protection and comfort since I've started riding and this is my 3rd attempt. I feel most leather jackets offer poor impact protection which I would rather have than abrasion resistance but most armored jackets like these are awkward to get in and out of and annoying to use day to day. I'm hoping this one solves that problem for me.Jul 14, 2015
Frank S: recommended from a friend and allows me to be protected and wear different something over it that I prefer as to a single design top.Aug 20, 2014

Michael L asked:i wear a size 50 dainese leather jacket. what size should i get this jacket in?Jun 4, 2014
Frank S:The chest protector is pretty thick. I would think you would have to buy the Schott a couple of sizes larger. It would ruin the lines of the Schott. If you took out the chest protector it would fit nicely. The chest protector seems to ride high until you get in riding position then it is perfect. Sep 8, 2014
Giles C:David, I am not familiar with the schott 141 so I can't tell you is the City Guard will fit under. I know that the City Guard is really just very light mesh holding pieces of body armour together. I would not call it a jacket. Hope this helps.Sep 8, 2014
Taymour C:I am usually an M (about 6ft snd 165lbs athletic build) and am either a dianese 50 or 52. Order both and try both on to return one of them. I have: Dainese Avro C2 Leather Jacket: 52 Dainese Stradon Gore-Tex Jacket: 50 Dainese super speed textile: 52 Dainese city guard armor: large (exception to M)Jun 13, 2014
Michael R:I have a Laguna Seca Textile in a size 54 (it fits near perfectly) and the Large City Guard is on the small size of fitting correctly. These run small. If you're unsure, order both sizes and return the one that doesn't fit. It beats getting one that doesn't and having to wait for the one that does.Jul 22, 2014
